Welcome to the ATC

Upcoming Antioch Traveling Closet Events

* * * August 12: Our Next ATC Event! * * *
The Antioch Traveling Closet’s next event will be held on Sunday, August 12, from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Antioch Senior Center, 817 Holbek Dr., Antioch (north of Firehouse #1 at Orchard St. and Holbek Dr. and across the street from Buttrick’s Mill). It will be a “back to school” event meant to get area youngsters off on the right foot for another year of learning with toiletries, school supplies, clothes, and even haircuts!

Because of space limitations inside the Senior Center, no strollers will be allowed inside the building.

Also, we have a limited supply of bags. If you have the bags donated by Gillespe Ford at our last event, please bring them to this event.

TO DONATE: If you have items you’d like to donate, please read the notice below about the August 4th event dedicated to accepting donations.

TO VOLUNTEER: If you’d like to become an ATC volunteer, click here, fill out the volunteer information form, and someone from ATC will be in touch!

ATC—A HELPING HAND

Welcome to the Antioch Traveling Closet website!

The Antioch Traveling Closet Corporation NFP is a non-for profit organization founded by Antioch resident, Lisa Fisher, that helps local families in need of clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, hair cuts, and schools supplies.

The Antioch Traveling Closet was formed in 2014 with a recruited handful of volunteers that has quickly grown to a widespread community effort supported through local businesses and caring residents.

The ATC Corp NFP is now a 501(c)(3) organization.


We Need Your Help!

For the past year we were fortunate enough to have our storage unit paid for by the Antioch Lions Club and the Antioch Firefighters Association. Click here to see the AFFA donation presentation photos.

Starting now, however, we’ll have to start paying the $160.00 monthly rental for our 10’x30′ storage unit through other donation sources. We need your help! If we continue to pay the monthly rental for the unit we will not be able to help families the way we want to.

Lisa Fisher sees the role of the ATC expanding in the future. She says her hope “is to find a location over the upcoming months that we can afford that will give us a place where we can collect donations, sort them, and have them on display. With a place like this, we can have more of these events or, in the event of an emergency, we can have volunteers go to that facility and begin immediately offering help right away.” This can’t be done without your help.

Please consider donating to keep the ATC alive and functioning. We appreciate all donations big and small! Donations are tax-deductible! PayPal and all major credit cards are accepted. The Antioch Traveling Closet is a 501(c)(3) organization.
